BPSF's Emergency Stabilization Fund Accepting Applications!

We are excited to announce that BPSF's Jeremy O Torres Emergency Stabilization Fund (JOTESF) is now accepting applications!  We know how important it is to support our LGBTQIA+ emerging adults when they face an unexpected crisis, especially in light of the impact of COVID-19.

We are also excited to share that our mission has expanded.  We continue serving Texas State University students and are also extending this source of support to LGBTQIA+ emerging adults (between the ages of 18 and 25), residing in the greater San Marcos area.

Since its inception, the JOTESF has supported over thirty LGBTQIA+ individuals at a time of unexpected need.  Circumstances included medical emergencies, natural disasters, immigration requirements, unexpected work reductions, loss of support from family, and roommate situations negatively impacting rent payment.  We are proud to continue this legacy of support.

We are also pleased to share that a $5,000 matching gift has been provided to help us meet our goal of raising $10,000 in 2020.  That means your generous donation will automatically double!  

If you would like to speak with one of our board members to learn more, renew your support, or become a donor, please email us and we'll be in touch shortly.

We look forward to reconnecting with the BPSF donor community to maintain this essential source of support.
